Rated 4 out of 5Â by HobbyWoodworker007 2 out of 3 Worked. I returned the defective unit.
I was replacing similar remote controls. My Home Depot expert told me that I had to replace both the transmitter with the receiver for them to work. He was wrong. I have Hunter fans. I set the 4 dip switches to match the receiver already there, did not wire the unit as per the instructions, AND IT WORKED. This tells me that these 4 dip switch settings are universal. I did have to replace both the receiver and transmitter on one of the fans because both were defective. Now we will see how long they last! Two out of the 3 units that I purchased worked fine, while one was defective, but I returned the defective unit for a credit, no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AverageJoe Great Product
The wall remote control works just as advertised, allowing for both fan speed control and light control from a wall switch. This one also came with a handheld remote that allows for dual control. I installed this in my master bedroom, so as we enter the bedroom we can turn the light on, then once in bed control the fan speed and shut the light off when it is time to sleep. I bought four of them, all three bedrooms and my great room. Since installing, I have also bought several of these units for my daughters house to upgrade her remote controls, works fine with her older fan.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by grandhavenmatt Works great, fast install, no backwards compatibility.
The new remote/switch installed exactly how the old ones did. It makes a two wire on/off light switch control fan speed AND the fan light. The quality seems to have improved over the last generation of Hampton Bay switches as well. The only down side was that the new switch wouldn't work with my old receiver, ao I lost my remote control. No worries though, the new switch works well.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Annette Love the product, but didn't work with our fan
We purchased this Hampton Bay ceiling fan/light after 1) calling Hampton Bay about our particular ceiling fan/light and finding out which controllers were compatible with our fan and 2) speaking to a Home Depot "technician" who claimed to be an electrician and verified this particular device would work with our fan. But unfortunately the online description did not indicate it will not work with a ceiling fan with halogen bulbs. Our Hampton Bay ceiling fan/light has halogen bulbs, so when we received the product and read the insert, that's when we found out it was incompatible with what we have. The electrician hooked it up anyway and all the lights did was flicker on and off. So we needed to return it. I like the controller-the look of it and all the neat functions and was hoping it would work for us. I just wish we could have known ahead of time so as not to waste time in ordering something that was not going to work. I gave the overall rating a 4 instead of a 5 since I felt the online description should have included this important piece of information for the consumer. If it would have worked for us, I would have been thrilled with the product. We ended up finding another solution, so it all worked out in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PeteH Wall-mount remote replaces a handheld remote
Wall-mount remote switch replaces a handheld remote which gets lost or hidden by my twin boys...
Remote works with wired power, or, it is powered by a 12V battery (included). I didn't have to attach any wires for the remote, which was my main concern.
I already had the fan's (included) receiver installed so didn't have to wire that part.
